Kansas Education Board First to Back 'Intelligent Design'

"Schools to Teach Doubts About Evolutionary Theory"

TOPEKA, Kan., Nov. 8 -- The Kansas Board of Education voted Tuesday that students will be expected to study doubts about modern Darwinian theory, a move that defied the nation's scientific establishment even as it gave voice to religious conservatives and others who question the theory of evolution.

By a 6 to 4 vote that supporters cheered as a victory for free speech and opponents denounced as shabby politics and worse science, the board said high school students should be told that aspects of widely accepted evolutionary theory are controversial. Among other points, the standards allege a "lack of adequate natural explanations for the genetic code."

I love it -- these people are actually trying to tell us they are so intimately familiar with genetic codes and the process of natural selection they can reject the scientific explanation? As if they'd know "intelligent" if it bit them on the ass.

I think it's more likely because none of them have enough fingers to count all 23 chromosomes ... most of them, not even if they take off their shoes. Altho I wouldn't doubt some of them are sextile on all their extremities, because perhaps successive generations of inbreeding would be an explanation for this.
